Imran Khan is not our favourite, declares CJP
ISLAMABAD ( 92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar asserted on Sunday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan is not the court’s ladla favourite.
Hearing the suo motu case on encroachments and environmental degradation in the capital’s Bani Gala locality, the chief justice, heading a two-member bench, asked State Minister for Capital Administration and Development Division Tariq Fazal Chaudhry why he’s giving the impression that the court went soft on Imran regarding his Bani Gala estate.
The chief justice warned of taking action against the minister if he doesn’t clarify that it was in-fact the government that permitted Imran to do carry out illegal construction in the first place.
Referring to the state information minister, the chief justice questioned why Marriyum Aurangzeb is giving statements that the court gave a concession to Imran. He also asked why “they want to bring the courts into disrepute”.
